    that moment...

    Post by theycallmerico on Tue Sep 18, 2012 10:15 pm

    I'll start this by saying that I am doing my first play-through.

    After wrapping up New Londo Ruins, I decided to make my to the Demon Ruins. I won't lie-NLR was not fun. Aside from fighting the Darkwraiths, I never quite felt like I was a skilled warrior. Fighting the kings didn't change that either.

    I arrive to Demon Ruins, and I remembered what made me love this game in the first place. No transient curses needed; just pure combat against massive beasts and fun bosses in perilous landscapes!

    So that leads me to my question:

    When and where was that moment in the game that had that perfect blend of everything you absolutely loved?

    When I ran into Havel and his huge dildo for the first time. He slaughtered me. After a few defeats, I learned my opponent and with my experience/knowledge I was able to conquer him - it felt great.

    I knew then what Dark Souls was. cheers

    Probably when I left the Duke's Archive's. I spent about half of my first playthrough stuck in there, so it was an extreme breath of fresh air being able to fight different enemies than crystal warriors and Seath the Scaleless.

    Anor Londo, dealing with getting to the other side of the bridge by going through the rafters. I'm a bit acrophobic.

    I actually passed that way the other day. I kept trying to go into the Catacombs after first arriving to the Firelink Shrine (who didn't?). I wanted revenge!

    Turns out-and I had no clue-the Silver Knight Spear is divine. 8)

    Every time i play the game, i always enjoy clearing to gargoyles. it's really awesome. i get to see a dragon, kill a taurus demon, asylum demon, and then gargoyles. i've gotten really proficient at it now and still enjoy doing it.

    next to that... anor londo, minus the dragon archers and rafters.... i really like the diesign concepts surrounding anor londo. and the lore involving hte royal family is awesome.

    as a side note about capra demon.... i used to think shield/estoc w/ fire or pine resin was the best way to kill. i've changed my mind. walking in with high poise and a big arching 2hander is my new favorite. i thought i'd be screwed when i didnt have a shield/estoc, but since ive done that methjod, i dont think i've failed on demon. i just roll the first attack, then line up a big swing arc and kill both dogs and dmg capra at once, then just solo capra. easy peasy. high poise!

    What do you grab for the high poise that early? Elite Knight + Wolf Ring?

    i believe i used the starting knight gear. but elite knight gear is comparable and easily obtainable as well.

    i've used that strategy ever since. 2h w/ big arc + poise and dodge first attack, then change to normal when dogs die.

    Ah. I just make sure I have an upgraded shield to tank the hits, and 10 flasks. That's enough for me.
